Members of the association will not tolerate vulgarity and violence, especially when fomented by demonstrators from outside our state.  Our members will continue to resist sit in demonstrations …we invite these demonstrators to abandon their campaign against members of our association which supports their objective and to join with our association and many other Marylanders to proposing prompt passage of a public accommodations law…to meet with legislators…to discuss means of achieving  such legislation…”
